Dr. Jasmine Zapata (Dr. JZ), a Dynamic Author, Physician, Inspirational Speaker, Entrepreneur, Former Collegiate Athlete, & Health Empowerment Educator, is on a mission to heal, uplift, & inspire.
Having received her Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of Wisconsin, Madison in 2013, Dr. JZ completed her Pediatric Adolescent Medicine certification in 2016. On top of all that, she's completing her Master’s in Public Health & Preventive Medicine, a dual medical certification.
As a medical doctor, she specializes in the fields of both pediatrics preventive medicine/public health & her overall focus is looking for ways to get outside the clinic walls to impact health outcomes on a community based level. Her research focuses on healthy birth outcomes & racial disparities in infant mortality among African American women. Given the life-threatening birth of her daughter related to complications of extreme prematurity, this is a topic near & dear to Dr. JZ's heart.
Another true passion of Dr. JZ’s highlighting the link between poverty & poor health outcomes & working on ways to decrease disparities related to that area. Interestingly, one of the biggest social determinants of health outcomes is economic stability & for this reason Dr. JZ got involved in real estate as a means to achieve personal financial freedom & help others do the same.
Dr. JZ's excited to be a co-author of She Conquered, a collaboration project to further spread the message & inspire others to continue reaching for their dreams no matter what obstacles come their way!
